    Right, so I was planning on swapping my Henkei Cyclonus' wings with my Universe Cyclonus' wings, but I kind of hit a snag. See, there's no where for the pin to pop out of. Does anyone know if/how I could remove this pin? Any advice would be appreciated.

    A set of precision jewelers screwdrivers will get those tiny screws out. They have some real fine heads on them. The pins don't come out, you have to take apart the whole shoulder and swap it. Gonna do it as soon as my Henkei comes in

    Sorry, but in my experience, the only solution to those "one-way" pins is to take a small pinvise with a teeny drillbit, and drill a hole from the other side to push the pin out... then putty it all over when you're done. :-\

    Mind me asking why you would like to insert the henkei's wings to the classics version?

    I'm not a big fan of Henkei Cyclonus' chrome. It looks kind of out of place (IMO), and I think I'd like him more if he had the Hasbro's grey wings.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just de-chrome the wings?
